Abstract

Tumoral calcinosis is rarely encountered disease, and most of reported cases involved large joints such as hip or elbow. We report two patients with tumoral calcinosis in the foot. In the 1st case, the lesion was observed at the 1st MP joint of foot, and in the 2nd case it was found at the DIP joint of 5th toe area with bony erosion which is rare in other tumoral calcinosis. They all needed evaluation with MRI, and eventually surgical excision.
